Endowed by a $5 million gift from distinguished alumnus Alex Trebek, The Alex Trebek Forum for Dialogue will enrich and broaden public debate in Canada. Opinion leaders, CEOs, government officials, foreign dignitaries and heads of state will join tomorrow’s leaders to discuss substantive public policy issues.

The Forum for Dialogue will:

  • Bring speakers and guests with a wide range of perspectives and ideas to campus
  • Host conferences, workshops and other public events related to research projects on major public policy challenges
  • Invite visiting heads of government and heads of state to deliver lectures and speeches.
